What do you think on this build? Are there any issues with the components like not being compatible with each other or something like that? or just ways of improving it? Would mean a lot if someone could really help me out here as this would be my first build, thanks in advance.

1. Motherboard and CPU are incompatible.
2. The link to the GPU doesn't work.
3. The PSU is a bit too much for a single R9 280X.

Ok thanks, so should I get like a 600w power supply instead and also can you possibly link me a new motherboard that will be better suited for my build for the same price roughly, I was appreciate that a lot, Thanks :)

Asus M5A97 R2.0.

And yes, a quality 600W PSU will be fine. Not a crappy 600W PSU. :)
